Go-To-Gifts: Girl Edition

Sometimes people I work with come to me for ideas to give kids, moms, girlfriends, etc. for special occasions. I typically answer with one of the following options and, in most cases, one fits the bill perfectly.

Every kid needs a Little Giraffe Blanket. I hear Suri Cruise has like 50 of these things, but they are the softest blankets in the world and my little guy still likes to snuggles on his (although it doesn't quite cover his toes anymore). All I could say when I got my blanket as a shower gift from a friend is "I wish they made these in my size" - and guess what - now they do! They ain't cheap, but totally worth the money you pay! (Infant blanket typically retails for $58.00). They come in great colors and patterns.

Graduation, Baby, Wedding
One great gift that works for just about anyone and everyone can use is a great tote. Lands End offers totes in tons of sizes, colors and styles - plus you can add a great monogram - all for around $40. I received one when my son was born that had his name on it and we use it every time we go on a road trip, visit the pool or visit friends.

Kid Birthdays
If you feel like trying something a little different for a kid or even teenage birthday gift, try a personalized beach towel - this works especially great for kids with spring/summer birthdays.

Here are some great ones from The Company Store and Garnet Hill.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
